Sweet Friends

Lately I have making my own sketches but for this one I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers.

One thing I LOVE to do is to make my own epoxy stickers. So for the initials "m" and "t" I first stamped them in brown (chocolate from ctmh) and then I stamped versa mark overtop of that and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder, then set it with my embossing heater. I did this two more times to really give it a glossy and thick effect.

Embossing powder doesn't only have to be for stamped images either. I used them on white stickers too. The "sweet" stickers were white so I sponged them with brown ink and then versa mark and embossing powder. The trick is to use tweezers to hold them while using your embossing heater. And voila, cute homemade epoxy stickers!

All product is from Close to my Heart.
